Formax FD 342 Paper Folding Machine

The FD 342 Document Folder is a fast, dependable and easy-to-use solution for virtually all folding applications. Six popular folds are clearly marked on the fold plates for quick set-up and operation, simply slide the fold stop to the desired fold and go. Additional fold adjustments can be made with the fine tuning knobs at the end of each fold plate for precision folding.

No need to stand and watch over this folder, operators can load up to 500 sheets in the hopper, select their fold, press start and walk away to attend to other important tasks. The FD 342 will fold the 500 sheets in no time at all and hold the folded pieces on its patented Telescoping Conveyor System until they are retrieved.

The patented Multi-Sheet Feeder is an optional feature that allows up to 4 sheets stapled or unstapled to be folded at one time through the dedicated feed system with its own side guides and skew adjustment system.

The FD 342 is capable of processing paper up to 18” (457mm) in length and up to 12.25” (311mm) in width giving it the flexibility to process a variety of paper sizes. The ability to customize jobs allows operators to fold in virtually any configuration that requires only two folds. Cross folding adds to the FD 342’s flexibility allowing for additional folds in a second pass.

The simplicity and value of the FD 342 make it an ideal solution for any church, school or small business that is cost conscious but requires the easy operation, versatility and dependability of a more expensive folder.
